1% court," devoted entirely to the u.s. supreme court. it's one you'll not want to miss -- and not because it opens with an article jointly written by me and the historian bernard weisberger. our mission was simply to remind the reader of what's obvious. that because of the partisan gridlock paralyzing both president and congress, more than ever the court has become the most powerful branch of government, and the center of a controversy which may shape the fate of democracy for generations to come. with me to talk about this is "the nation" magazine's editor and publisher katrina vanden heuvel. she's a fruent psence on the talk news shows and a familiar byline in major publications. she has been one of those out in front, calling the president to task for orphaning his values and promises, as can be seen in her most recent book, "the change i believe in: fighting for progress in the age of obama." the prolific jamie raskin also joins us. one of the country's leading scholars on constitutional law, he teaches at american university and is a maryland state senator, where i

body politic and that is the scourge of legalized gambling. >> but by the mid-1990s, after leaving the christian coalition, reed had set up his own political consulting firm. he sent an email to his old friend abramoff, who was now known on k street as "casino jack." this is what reed wrote. >> "hey, now that i'm done with electoral politics, i need to start humping in corporate accounts! i'm counting on you to help me with some contacts." >> abramoff came through. he and reed teamed up in a campaign to protect the choctaw casino against competition from other tribes. the scheme called for reed to organize his fellow christians to oppose new casinos on moral grounds -- without ever telling them that his own client "casino jack" was in the gambling business, too. emails between them make clear where the money came from. when reid pushed for a green light to organize christians in alabama against gambling, abramoff said approval would first have to come from the choctaw, and demanded. >> get me invoices as soon as possible so i can get choctaw to get us checks asapp. >> reed wrote ba

they need. thirdly vote. and fourthly pray for the next 72 days. >> ralph reed was in s ory in tampa, his reincarnation in full swing. but there are some other things you need to know about reid. first when he bailed out of the christian coalition in 1997, only two years after his big "time" magazine cover story, he had driven the organization into the ground. it was nearly bankrupt, under investigation by the federal election commission, and facing charges from its own financial officer that reed's cronies had ripped off almost a million dollars. despite that record, reid went on to flourish in the early years of george w. bush. until it was disclosed that the "right hand of god" had his other hand out to his old friend, the super-lobbyist jack abramoff, and was raking in the cash. reid's allies today say they're not bothered by all that. ralph has a great track record, said one. reid's ties to abramoff are quote, "largely in the rear-view mirror." perhaps. but the view from the rear-view mirror can be quite revealing. let's take a look. >> senator, i respectively invoke the privilege as
